A Time To Sew 3:7 {review & giveaway}

I absolutely love supporting hand-made shops, so I'm here to tell you all about my friend Stephanie's new Etsy shop called A Time To Sew 3:7

She makes blankets & burp cloths. You can buy them individually or in a set! She is constantly making new blankets to add to her shop, so if you see something you like there, you can pick it up a ready made blanket.

But also? How many times do you have in mind something you want, but can't find it anywhere?? I have the answer for you. Stephanie also makes custom blankets!

The one she sent for Bennett was a custom style. I knew that I wanted a blanket larger than the average 'baby' blanket so she made it a bit bigger to suit a toddler bed. I was also kinda picky with the pattern. I didn't want any graphics or anything so I let her know what I was looking for and she was so easy to work with!! Together we found the perfect fabric. I chose this blue & cream striped colored fabric and told her to choose the minky style for the backside.

The finished product!


Bennett loves it! I think it will be the perfect addition to his new "big boy room".

Over all, I'm really pleased with the blanket. It's well made, and super soft! It's lightweight but also warm enough that he'd only need this one blanket in his bed at night.

I kinda love the blanket so much, I already ordered another one as a gift :)



If you're expecting a baby, or looking to decorate your kids room. Or if you just need a baby shower gift, go check out Stephanie's shop! Send her a message if you have something specific in mind. She's so sweet & east to work with!

Now for the fun part! Stephanie has offered to giveaway one of her chevron burp cloth sets! You choose the color fabric and she'll make it custom for you!

Here is an example of what she is giving away!
